The concern with doing this is we could be acused of copying another map, but since we actually sight it and see it doesn't exist a stub might be sufficient

Not really, if people see a blank on OSM but see a road on another map they might feel the urge to map the road that doesn't exist, that's what we're trying to achieve here, limit the amount of times people visit non-existent roads simply because there was no note on the map so they will assume it just hasn't been mapped.
